Inspiration

Sharing the love

These are the many creative ways brands from across The Bicester Village Shopping Collection are engaging fans and showing they care right now…

Michael Kors

Michael Kors is inviting us into his home – and the fashion giant proves a dab hand in the kitchen! While the designer, Honorary Chairman and Chief Creative Officer of Michael Kors admits he’s no Martha Stewart, his meatballs and spaghetti says otherwise. He cooked the meal (a favourite he normally enjoys with friends) for his new ‘At home with Michael’ Instagram series, in which he shares words of support and motivation with his millions of followers (albeit astride his exercise bike or with pet cat in hand). This particular meal was created in support of God’s Love We Deliver, a provider of free meals to ill New Yorkers, and a cause close to Michael’s heart.

Under Armour

Social distancing is no excuse to spend all day on the sofa. Fortunately Under Armour fans have plenty of workout inspiration thanks to the brand’s 'Healthy at Home Challenge’, an Instagram series and new addition to its wildly popular MyFitnessPal and MapMyRun apps. Break a sweat trying everything from a shadowboxing session to a bodyweight circuit, all presented by a legit trainer. As further motivation to sign up for the fitness challenge, Under Armour is donating up to $1 million to support Good Sports, a charity that works to ensure youth sport leagues have the necessary equipment, footwear and apparel when play resumes.

Karl Lagerfeld

Ever cool, Karl Lagerfeld live streams pumping tech-house sets direct to your living room courtesy of some of the planet’s coolest DJs (gorgeous Chelina Manuhutu hitting the decks in her Amsterdam home and London-based Siobhan Bell dropping beats were definite highlights). The brand’s Instagram series, ‘Together with Team Karl’, also offers live fashion drawing classes and meditation classes with yogi masters.

Levi’s® Denim Skirt

Levi's®

Levi’s® believes in the community-building power of music, especially in unsettling times. The visionary jeans brand is hosting ‘5:01 Live’, a series of Instagram concerts from a range of musicians and DJs, posted daily at – you guessed it –5:01pm (PST). The brand is then either donating to the charity of each artist’s choice or providing them with direct funds to support their ongoing endeavours.

Tune in at @levis to be serenaded by the likes of Sigrid or Moses Sumney.
